Sobek with a Khopesh (Reaper's 14381, Nefsokar Devourer of Ammat, painted up by Pingo )

Recommended Posts

That is one nasty looking Lizard Lad, a BEAUTIFULLY painted one, however. I love the background photo...I am a background fan. VERY WELL DONE!

I would never have thought of Sobek as sexy. I suppose you have the be an ancient Egyptian to find a crocodile erotic.

His name is apparently based on the old Egyptian word for "cause to be pregnant," which makes a sort of sense when you think about how the Nile River made Egypt fertile and even possible through its annual flooding of nutrient-rich silt and ready supply of fresh water.

I really like him. The cracks on his chin and chest just look like old scars which is suitable for a croc too. He's tough as well as sexy!

Beautiful work! Love this sculpt, and I concur: while he's made as an ushabti, crocodiles aren't known for their flawlessly smooth skin. Excellent greens and yellows.

      After some work WIP here:
       
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61706-xherman1964-tries-to-paint-a-crocodile/
       
      My Beloved of Sobek.
      A nice friendly Crocodile who wants nothing more then to hug you.
       
      I tried to copy the natural colours from a Nile Crocodile.
      Hope it worked.
       
      Base is a Resin Scenic Jungle Base from Microarts Studios, a mini in itself.
      The mini is from Crocodile Games Wargods of Aegyptus range
       
      A real joy to paint these two.
      Enjoy.
       
      He will also try to compete in a beauty contest.

      Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
       
      Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
       
      This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
       
      The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
       
      Enjoy!

      Basic paint job on these, a yellowy green coloured primer then a green wash. Then a water effect with gloss mod podge.

      This is the Reaper Bones 77371 Basilisk sculpted by Julie Guthrie. It's quite small - about the size of a large dog, with a wonderfully grouchy visage.
       
      I painted it up fairly quickly to illustrate a video about how yellow and black can be mixed to make greens. This was an example of the less vivid greens (For a really vivid yellow-and-black green, see my She-Hulk Show-Off thread). All the colors on the critter were mixed just from yellow (mostly Yellow Ochre, but also a little Hansa Yellow), black, and white.
       
      The video is here, if anyone cares to watch it.
